All Known Things

  • Eleanor Friedberger told Uncut February 2016 the story of this song: "That's a song I was working on for a really long time, and I liked it so much I wanted to include it on the album. That was for these shows we're doing in conjunction with the Andy Warhol museum, which we did in the States last fall, where there's five musicians scoring silent Warhol films."

    She added: "That's a song I wrote for an Edie Sedgwick film; it makes a lot of sense when you're watching that."
